Hey guys, yesterday the wife broke off the door handle from the inside and I’m not sure what to do.
Is there’s a way to replace it or do i have to change the entire door panel? Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Ah yes the driver door handle...yet another brilliant engineering feat by the same brilliant VW engineers that decided to tuck the rear hatch struts between the headliner and the roof! I mean, it's no fun to make it easy to just put the struts on the outside like other sane designers would, or to simply attach the plastic holder for the main window switches and door handle from the outside while still securing it with the covered screws...nah, that would just encourage DIYers to, well, DIY! And they couldn't have that..what are the dealers going to do then?

Sorry for the rant, just letting off some steam about my favorite pet peeves with the Treg.

Step 1 - beat the wife
Step 2 - re-attache the handle in a way that restores functionality.

Judging by the picture, functionality is all that's required. Can you not glue it back on?
